Maven Lite 1.2 – VR mode

added VR mode!

Now you can fly aboard your drone in first person immersive mode.

Gimbal Modes supported:

  • Normal (stabilized)
  • Head Tracking
  • FPV (not stabilized on the roll axis)

VR view is configurable in size, position and distance between the pupils, to adapt to practically all VR headsets.

Possibility to change point of view by selecting the drone or phone camera. (Particularly useful during takeoff and landing phases to ensure that the area is clear.)

Head-Tracking with “comfort tilt” mode that allows you to tilt the camera by 90° while only lowering your head by 60°.

Check the new manual for the VR function for all the details.

The update includes several bug fixes and performance improvements.

Maven 3.12 – languages

  • Added Italian language
  • Minor graphical improvements

In this version of the app we have modified all our source to accept translations, it has been a lot of work to make all the labels on the screen adapt correctly to the possible different lengths of the text.
We believe that the bulk of the work has been done, further translations of the app will come soon.

Maven Lite 1.0 (Android)

Maven for Android is here!!
This is the first version of our app for Android devices! Tons of updates are expected in the coming months

Virtual Copilot

  • a totally new feature to the app, especially useful for drones without native Point of Interest functionality (e.g. Mavic Mini)
  • choose a point on the map, then ask the copilot to control the Yaw Rotation and the camera to look at that point while you are free to manually fly the drone
  • the copilot has also more advanced skills like “orbit” ,”Follow / Track ME”, “cable cam” , check the manual
  • the copilot will open the door to great shots even to inexperienced pilots!

Follow ME! *

a complete GPS follow functionality that include

  • -Track Me (follow from any direction)
  • -Altitude follow**
  • -Orbit while follow
  • -automatic home point update
  • -live follow parameter update

* requires a GPS-equipped device
** requires a Barometer Sensor-equipped device

Cable Cam

Unique function that allows you to take smooth shots of your points of interest. Also great for creating hyperlapses.


Orbits to the max! No other app allows you the flexibility to change orbit radius and speed while it’s running! A real fun

AR Localizer

  • You have three Augmented Reality Localizer that will help you orient yourself on the Drone video feed.
  • The green locator will always show the Home position, the red one will show you the Position and Distance of a Point of Interest that you can choose on Map. The blue one show the GPS position of the piloting device
  • GPS Error, compass error or barometer sensor error could affect the accuracy of the localizer but will always be a great help to find your destination.

Complete access to all camera settings

Sync flight logs to AirData UAV

Maven Lite

The variety of android devices is so high that we can’t be sure it works on every device, and we can’t test them all, so to avoid selling you an application that might not work we decided that you can download and try the application for free.

It will be impossible to record videos from the drone while using the virtual copilot. Video recording will be unlocked via an in app purchase

The app require Android 7 or higher.
A device equipped with GPS is required for “follow / track me” functionality.
A device equipped with Barometer sensor is required for ” altitude follow” functionality.

Maven For Android – (beta)

###24/12/2022 update Maven Lite is now available for download on Google Play

original post:

The application is in a beta stage and we are working to reach the Play Store as soon as possible.

At launch the application will have very limited functions and will then be completed with subsequent updates

The android app will be called “Maven Lite” until it is fully functional of its iOS counterpart

The first feature available at launch will be the “virtual co-pilot” and will have all the capabilities of the iOS version including, follow me, orbit me, and cable cam

The variety of android devices is so high that we can’t be sure it works on every device, and we can’t test them all, so to avoid selling you an application that might not work we decided that you can download and try the application for free.

It will be impossible to record videos from the drone while using the virtual co-pilot. Video recording will be unlocked via an in app purchase.

This is one of the last tests:

Test with Maven for Android

IMPORTANT, currently Maven for Android is NOT available for download on any store or site. Until its availability is announced on this page, any “APK” you find on the internet is in all probability a scam

### UPDATE ###

Maven Lite is now available for download on Google Play
here is the link:

Maven Lite

Maven 3.11 BETA, Support for Mini 2, Air 2S,Mini SE + DISCOUNT

DJI has released SDK 4.16 for iOS in advance

We are working h24 for the release of the most anticipated Maven update ever with the support you have Mini2, Air 2s, Mini SE drones

From the very first tests the SDK integrates without problems, so the “beta” phase will probably not last long.
However we are not going to release the app in a hurry, everything must be perfect when the update reaches the app store!

To celebrate the release of the SDK we have decided to discount the app which goes from $ 17.99 to $ 9.99
We will keep the discounted price until we release the update!
***discount ended***

In addition, we open the Beta version for free to “everyone” (100 places available)
To download the beta, just follow this link: ***link full***

Message from DJI

this morning this message appeared on the DJI developer portal, and it doesn’t sound good ..


on the one hand we are reassured that we can continue to update our apps, we have a very interesting updates roadmap with many new features for Maven and we would be really sorry to have to abandon it

on the other hand we are a little worried about the support for the new drones, we obviously think of the mini 2 or the brand new DJI FPV where according to DJI the SDK will no longer be updated for iOS until they solve the question with Apple

We have a lot of work to do to bring Maven to android, and since the problem is not related to that platform, surely this message brings priority (which we need) to that work.

I am pretty sure that two big companies like Apple and DJI will work to resolve the situation in the common interest as soon as possible 🤞, we will keep our attention on the matter.
